Direct coupling of the Higgs boson to the top quark observed

An observation made by the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, published in the Physical Review Letters today, connects for the first time the two heaviest elementary particles of the Standard Model. Members of the CMS collaboration, including the Excellence of Science programme “be.h: The H boson gateway to physics beyond the Standard Model”, which includes researchers from the Université Catholique de Louvain, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Universiteit Gent and Universiteit Antwerpen were involved with this ground-breaking result.
